Thanks David.  I will say from here on that it possibly could be a 
Sunningdale yellow and leave it at that.  Roland also suggested it may 
be that one.  The leaves are quite stiff, unlike most of the Kniphofias 
I had come across before.  The "Traffic Lights" one more so than the 
yellow one.

And yes, I do like both.  They are compact and problem free so far.  I 
tried various Kniphofias, but eventually decided they were not worth the 
bother, multiplied like mad and the clumps got too big for my relatively 
small garden.

I do also have the brown flowered one but it has not flowered yet.

In chilly Auckland.  One day we are sweltering, next day it is back to 
winter gear.
